[PHOTOS] Lansing Man Recreates Iconic TV Car
If you've ever seen the Mystery Machine or the Ghostbusters vehicle driving around Lansing, you're not dreaming! Lansing man Aaron Aikman built them!
Meet Aaron Aikman. Aaron is from Lansing, works for CATA, and in his spare time, he builds and recreates iconic cars from TV shows and movies. Aaron, with some help from his cousins Jim and Jerry, has built replicas of Scooby Doo's Mystery Machine and the famous Ecto-1 vehicle from Ghostbusters. Now Aaron has a new iconic vehicle to add to the fleet: Knight Rider's KITT.
According to the Lansing State Journal, Aaron and his wife Christina unveiled KITT Tuesday night at Olympic Broil, and Aaron reports that people were pretty excited to see it!
"When people see that dashboard they're like, 'Woah, what is that?'" Aikman said. "I've met some people who've gone crazy over it. They grew up with Knight Rider."
Check out photos of KITT and the other vehicles Aaron has built. All photos were used with permission from Aaron Aikman.
